“Nintendo has major plans to focus on smart device development, including possibly designing its own controller for mobile gaming, according to general manager of entertainment planning and developement, Shinya Takahashi,” Julia Alexander reports for Polygon. “One of the biggest takeaways from Nintendo’s annual general shareholders meeting was its decision to dedicate a large portion of its efforts on developing new software for smart devices, like smartphones and tablets.”
“Takahashi is leading the smart device development team at the company, and said Nintendo is looking into both hardware and software development for different types of games and experiences,” Alexander reports. “‘Physical controllers for smart device applications are available in the market and it is possible that we may also develop something new by ourselves,’ Takahashi said. ‘I believe Nintendo’s way of thinking is to look at whether action games are really not impossible (without a physical controller for smart device applications) to create and how we can make it happen to create such a game.'”
